Video: Blake Griffin had disrespectful act for Thanasis Antetokounmpo
Blake Griffin had a big game for the Brooklyn Nets in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals on Saturday, and he got a little disrespectful too.
Griffin had 18 points and 14 rebounds in Brooklyn’s 115-107 win over the Milwaukee Bucks. Late in the game, he smacked Thanasis Antetokounmpo with a hard foul. Antetokounmpo was sent to the floor, and then Griffin disrespected him with a stepover.

That’s just like the move Allen Iverson had on Tyronn Lue.
Lue has taken a good attitude about the infamous moment, but we doubt Antetokounmpo will be so accepting of it. Jeff Teague already took issue with it after it happened.
